Mommyof2, Losing it and like this blog post.


I am SO EXCITED about this! I read most of the book you recommended last night. After reading your blog, too, I know this is something I can do. Whether I can lose weight doing it is still to be seen. I am the poster child for *last supper syndrome*. Mine have been known to last for months! So to be rid of that burden would thrill me. I'm ahead on my dietbets, so I can take the chance and try it out without worrying that I'll gain weight. It seems too good to be true and ... why haven't I heard of this before! LOL Thanks again!

That movie blew my socks off too. Phil's story underlines how broken many of us are. Losing weight is just part of the solution. When I see trainers on The Biggest Loser trying to dig into contestants' psyche to fix some of what got them so fat, I'm pulling for them. "Spill your guts! Start the healing process! Scream, cry, let it out!" This is what I want for those of us who use food to cover wounds.

Voting with the dollar tends to get the job done even more so that the ballots... in other words, buy organic, buy local, plant your own garden, and stay away from corporate monsters. Some people tell me no not possible too expensive, well if your nourishing your body, you do not require as much crap in your mouth. In our household at least (and that is a household of 2 adults and 4 kids) since changing all those old bad habits we saw the grocery bill at first go up, then even out, and now is a bit smaller, The results we are trimmer, more energetic, and happier. Thanks for sharing.


Powerful blog! I agree with you that America is getting tired of being controlled by Big Business, Big Pharma, Big Government...keep on growing the grass roots movement!

I have never heard of this but I personally know allergies suck. I wonder if there is something stronger your doctor can give you. The good news is your throat is not swelling up.

I'll pretend to agree with you, ha. It's an intriguing idea, along the lines of "Fake it til you make it." On EWL, Chris Powell has talked about clients being Athletes in Training. I think these are all similar notions. You may not be something you desire at this moment, but what if you were a _____ in Training? I choose to be a Healthy Person in Training!
